Mind-bending puzzles

kubic is a relaxing optical illusion puzzle game based on M.C. Escher’s art, impossible objects and other geometric designs. The object is to construct the goal configuration from a number of pieces.

Presented in a simple, clean design and minimalistic art, kubic is a premium game with no ads or in-app purchases. It’s just your brain and 60 escher-esque puzzles.

When you click on a piece, it pops to the front-most layer, and may overlap other pieces. When you combine the pieces, they do not merge. If there are extra pieces, you may hide them behind the others. If you are stuck on a puzzle you can simply skip it and re-visit at a later time. Rest assured, all puzzles can be solved. Tip: It helps to build figures from back to front.

Levels divided in 5 groups:
• Ocean (Blue) – “2D” Shapes are basically two-dimensional arrangements.
• Desert (Orange) – “3D” Shapes appear to be three-dimensional, but remember to think in two dimensions.
• Mountain (Purple) – “Convex/Concave” These optical illusions are inspired by Escher’s famous “Convex and Concave” lithograph.
• Sky (Green) – “Up/Down” These optical illusions are inspired by the Penrose Triangle featured in Escher’s lithograph “Waterfall”.
• Escher (Mixed) – Based on letter designs that spell out MC ESCHER.

If you’ve seen any paintings by MC Escher, Kubic will be very familiar to you. This quirky puzzle game bends the limits of space and reality to make you create structures that, in theory, should be impossible to replicate. Kubic Review – Playing with shapes
